Chicago Bulls Zone Player Previews: Aaron Brooks

#0 PG-SG 6’0 161 Aaron Brooks age 30 @Thirty2zero

Aaron Brooks returns to the Bulls after quickly agreeing to da Bulls mini-midlevel exception for one season. He put in a lot of work for the Bulls last season, coming up big at times and really contributing to the team when injuries struck the team. A traditional sparkplug off the bench with a penchant for making unbelievable shots, Brooks was dejavu for fans of former electric PG Nate Robinson. Capable of taking over offensively for stretches, Brooks became a liability in the playoffs when teams used taller lineups to expose his height disadvantage. I have clamored for da Bulls to find a new, tall, combo guard to take over the Kirk Hinrich role for years and I think Etwaun Moore will or should be that for the Bulls this season, relegating Brooks to situational minutes while also sharing the backcourt with Moore at times. Brooks can shoot his way into more playing time and hopefully surprise with improved defense, but it’s difficult to believe he will play extensively once the postseason arrives. His creativity controlling the new offense will decide his role this year.
